7:07 am
as for the incident, brown's management tweeted yesterday that brown never sent the bottle of champagne. there was no bottle sent to drake. there was no note. top the lies. there were no punches thrown. just glass. now, police are reviewing the video, according to "the post." and if drake doesn't agree to turn himself in, police could arrest him at a concert tonight near new york. and drake's lawyers have said that he had nothing to do with that brawl. and a key u.s. ally from saudi arabia has died. crown prince nayef passed away this morning. nayef was a hard line interior minister. he led saudi arabia's fierce crackdown, crushing al qaeda in that country. he was supportive of the u.s. stance on syria and iran. nayef was in his late 70s and had been next in line to the saudi thrown. and the nationwide search for a trauma surgeon suspected of killing his ex-girlfriend in buffalo. that search is over. the body of dr. timothy jorden, dressed in surgical scrubs, was found in a ravine near his house. the former special forces

7:09 am
fallout after president obama's bombshell decision to stop deporting some illegal immigrants who came here as children. the move generated a positive reaction from the hispanic community, a crucial voting demographic. but critics are questioning the timing and legality of it all. and abc's david kerley has the latest from the white house this morning. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, bianna. the president couldn't get the dream act immigration reform through congress. last year, he said he couldn't stop deportation. today, he says he can stop deportation of some young immigrants, which has led to some charges from capitol hill that he is circumventing congress. celebrations. not the dream act but the dream for many immigrants with these words from the president. >> friends, with our kids, they pledge allegiance to our flag. they are americans in their hearts. >> reporter: so, the president now says, anyone brought to this country as a child who has gone or is going to school with a clean record can come forward, avoid deportation, renewable every two years and seek a work
7:10 am
permit. >> this is not amnesty. this is not immunity. this is not a path to citizenship. it's not a permanent fix. >> reporter: but it is part of what the immigrant community wanted. and in an election year, where their vote matters, mitt romney offered a very nuanced response. >> got to find a solution to help the kids who came here through no fault of their own. at the same time, people are looking for a long-time solution, not something that's temporary through an executive order. >> reporter: but other republicans were more direct. some on capitol hill questioned the legality the constitutionality of the president's move. and arizona's governor went even further. >> it's no coincidence that this sweeping policy change was announced less than five months before a presidential election. >> reporter: while there were celebrations, this is only part of what the so-called dreamers wanted. so, these 20-somethings who were preparing a protest in los angeles before the big news from the president, have mixed feelings. >> i will be applying for a work
7:11 am
permit. but we'll see how it goes. >> reporter: but others worry. what if there's a new president next year? what about their undocumented parents? >> if my mother can't do it, i don't want to do it. so, until something is done for all of us, then, personally, i'm not going to take part in it. >> david, i want to ask you about a moment that caught everyone offguard during his press conference. a reporter from "the daily caller," what many are calling him a heckler, interrupted the president. asking him questions. you, as we can see in this video, are stand right behind him. can you tell us what he was thinking when he kept interrupting the president? i know that you reached out to him. >> reporter: i'm not going to tell you what he was thinking. but here's what happened. this was in the middle of the president's statement. and all of a sudden, this reporter, neil munro, does what you're about ready to see. let me explain what happened afterwards. >> it is the right thing to do. excuse me, sir. this is not time for questions, sir. not while i'm speaking.
7:12 am
>> reporter: well, a few moments later, the president then tried to answer that question. but again, the reporter interrupted the president. they put out a statement. i e-mailed the reporter and said, hey, would you give me a call. he wouldn't call me. he wrote in an e-mail. i did not heckle. i asked questions. i did not wish to interrupt him or to be rude. but let me tell you. i was standing there. he did interrupt the president in the middle of his statement. it was rude. and as the president tried to answer, once again, injecting questions without allowing the president to answer questions. you could actually call that heckling. it was a really uncomfortable time for the president and this reporter. >> a lot of people were considering that a heckler. all right. david, thank you. >> strong words from david kerley. thank you, both. now, to a verdict in a trial that presented the jurl with a thorny moral dilemma. can a woman who has been warned she's prone to seizures be held
7:13 am
responsible when she gets behind a wheel and causes a crash that kills a family of five? here's abc's clayton sandell. >> reporter: it took a jury just five hours to acquit monica chavez of negligent homicide. >> not guilty. >> reporter: for something that ended five lives in a split-second. driving with her two kids in february last year, doctors believe chavez had a seizure. she floored the gas pedal, careening at 100 miles per hour, smashing down on the stollsteimer family pickup in thornton, colorado. randy and crystal, their kids, sebastian, darrian and cyrus, all killed. >> this was redundant. >> reporter: prosecutors argued chavez should have known not to drive, especially after previous seizure-like episodes, including one that sent her to a hospital in 2006. but chavez, prosecutors say, ignored orders then to see a neurologist. her attorney says she followed up with her family doctor. >> she was told that she may think -- she was told they couldn't find anything wrong with her. they did testing.
7:14 am
they ran tests. they told her she was fine. >> reporter: even if chavez had been officially diagnosed with seizures six years ago, colorado law does not require doctors to tell the department of motor vehicles. only six states do. >> it's wrong. this verdict was wrong. >> reporter: the stollsteimer family, outraged by the verdict, wants to make colorado the seventh. >> they'll never be returning. you have to go day-to-day. always remembering them in your mind. keep them in your heart. and knowing you're never going to see them again. something i wouldn't wish upon anyone. >> reporter: for "good morning america," clayton sandell, abc news, denver. let's check the weather, now, with ginger zee. good morning to you. >> good morning, dan and bianna. good morning, everyone. we start with hurricane carlotta. it was category 2. 105-mile-per-hour winds overnight. but then, as it made landfall, near puerto escondito here it was category 1. it did kill two people. that's what they know so far.
7:15 am
and it continues to weaken. that's what it will do going into midweek, too. mudslides and flooding become an issue north of acapulco. that is threat one. we have to go on to threat two. fires continue. and tomorrow into monday, new fire watches going up from nevada and idaho over into colorado and parts of wyoming. of course, i've got another threat. one more for you here. severe weather. we look for des moines, chicago, st. louis, kansas city, all included. it will be a nice day in the southeast. but rip currents could be an is >> i got tons and tons of great photos as we went through the
7:16 am
week here. we need to go to the facebook photos now. we'll begin with the hailstorm in dallas. now, the number up to 1.5 million. bethany is one of our freelance producers. sunset on the lake. that was from newaygo, michigan. dan and bianna? >> thank you, ginger. appreciate it. for those of us following the ups and many downs of lindsay lohan's turbulent march through fame in america, there is now a new twist involving a row tell room a 911 call and paramedics. it turned out to be less disastrous than you might expect. here's abc's tanya rivero. >> reporter: the scary 911 call, bringing paramedics rushing to lindsay lohan's room in this l.a. hotel friday, had many fearing the worst for the troubled actress. >> when they went to wake her up, allegedly, she was unresponsive. >> reporter: but after a checkup, paramedics left and her
7:17 am
reps quickly issued a statement. producers were concerned when she did not come out of her room. lindsay was examined and is fine. but did suffer some exhaustion and dehydration. according to tmz, she had gone without sleep for two days, while shooting her latest film, "liz and dick." the 25-year-old is playing elizabeth taylor in lifetime's tv movie about taylor's tumultuous relationship with richard burton. but even poised for what could be her big comeback, lilo just can't seem to stay out of trouble. >> lindsay seems to be that character in charlie brown where there's always a little storm over here. >> reporter: just a week ago, lohan allegedly crashed a rented porsche into an 18-wheeler. back in 2007, a conviction for dui. later, another conviction for shoplifting. more recently, jail time for violating parole. and liz taylor is not the first hollywood icon she's channeled to rescue her career. who can forget her ten-page "playboy" spread ala marilyn monroe?
7:18 am
>> can i see your irises? she's good. >> reporter: when hosting "snl" she showed a sense of humor about her troubles. >> wait. so, the alarm goes off if i leave the stage? i thought it was only if i leave the studio. >> reporter: if all goes well, this movie could put lohan back in the game. >> i'm sure lindsay lohan feels a great deal of pressure. a very high-profile project. the good news for lindsay, we haven't heard reports of her being late to the set. any bad behavior. so far, she's kept her nose clean. >> reporter: there's even more good news for lindsay. her rep tells me, she's doing better. she's eager to get back to work. in fact, she was back on set working by the end of the day yesterday. so, she took very little time to recover. it seems she's determined to give her all to this production. >> that's right. a lot of hype about this movie. tanya, thank you. well, fresh off her diamond jubilee extravaganza, there's another special celebration for the queen today. marking her birthday, which means lots more pomp, pageantry,
7:19 am
royalty and big parades. abc's lama hasan has more on the monarch's big day from london. good morning, lama. >> reporter: good morning, bianna. from one birthday girl, you, to another. we have lots of pomp and circumstance this morning for you. it's called trooping the color, when the queen celebrates her official birthday. she's 86 years old. and, boy, she's still going strong. this morning, another dazzling display of big birthday celebrations, fit for a queen. cue the 1,600 officers and soldiers. cue the 241 horses. and the 290 musicians. her majesty gets to share her big day with other members of the royal family. william, marching in the parade. kate. and an appearance by the man we've seen by her side for nearly 65 years. >> this will be the first official engagement we see
7:20 am
prince philip at since he was hospitalized during the jubilee celebration. >> reporter: in his absence, william and kate stepped in to help the queen. and wherever they went, the crowd followed. last night, kate was out by herself. while william was at home, watching the soccer on tv, kate spent the evening with 150 kids from 1 of her charities. watching a production of "the lion, the witch and the wardrobe." but the day, today belongs to this woman. the perfect birthday present for the birthday girl. her majesty's real birthday is april 21st. but for centuries, she celebrates her birthday in june, when weather is more likely. luckily today, there were no summer showers. >> today marks her official birthday, which is really a chance for the public to celebrate her birthday. we can have all of the pomp and
7:21 am
pageantry that the british are very well known for. >> reporter: like clockwork, every year, as soon as it strikes 11:00, the royal procession arrives and the queen takes the royal salute. well, the queen has birthday honors where she hands out medals for those recognized for their good work. and she honors british talents. this year, actress kate winslet is among them. i missed out. >> next year, lama. >> thank you, lama. in the commercials, it seems so simple. celebrities coo into their phones. and siri talks back to them. making dinner reservations, you name it. one guy from new york is suing, saying it doesn't really work like that. here's abc's bazi kanani. >> reporter: celebrities sell siri as the girl who gets things done. >> find me a store that sells organic mushrooms. >> reporter: almost anything, it seems. >> because it's date night. >> reporter: the voice-activated digital assistant, launched last fall, was the biggest change the latest version of apple's iphone. >> everybody i talked to loves siri. >> reporter: consumers had high expectations for siri. but some now say she let them
7:22 am
down. even apple's co-founder, steve wozniak, said he was really disappointed. now, one new york man is going to court over it. an attorney working on frank fazio's class-action lawsuit told abc news, the crux of the lawsuit is mr. fazio's allegation that the siri feature simply does not work as advertised. we decided to see for ourselves. first, actress zoe dechanel. >> let's ghet tomato soup delivered. >> i found a number of restaurants that deliver tomato soup. >> reporter: what happened when we put her to the test? let's get tomato soup delivered. >> i found 12 restaurants that mention tomato soup and deliver. >> reporter: just like the commercial. a little slower. but while siri can answer the exact questions asked in the tv ads, others leave her stumped. which way to abc news atlanta?
7:23 am
checking on that for you. i can't answer that. apple as always called siri a beta product, acknowledging it is still being improved. >> if you think apple is going to continue to sell this smartphone with this feature, it will have to work better than it actually does today. >> if you bought it completely assuming that it was going to give you the world when you ask it to, your expectations were a little unrealistic. >> reporter: for "good morning america," bazi kanani. >> abc news, atlanta. coming up here on the broadcast, a young woman who went to a nicki minaj concert, murdered in a hotel room. now, the young american musician facing charges in a foreign land. kim kardashian opens up to oprah. how she's matured since her brief marriage. and we have details on when the new "hunger games" is coming out. keep it here. gotta get that bacon! bacon?! bacon!
